Bentley Restaurant & Bar, in Sydney, is a culinary treasure prized for its contemporary and inspired menu, served in its relaxing and rustic eatery. The house-cured wagyu tri tip served with bread and pickles and the anchovies with cured apple and fried bread make delicious and sharable starter options. Some of Bentley Restaurant & Bar's specialty entrŽes include the kurobuta pork loin with macadamia nuts and tangy umeboshi, the swordfish with pickled mussels and kelp butter and the vegetarian beet root with black rice, blackberry and purple kale, all of which are incredibly fresh and delicately seasoned. A multi-course meal served on Saturdays is also popular.
For a sweet and whimsical end to your dining experience at Bentley Restaurant & Bar, enjoy the bright lemon myrtle ice cream with rhubarb and goat's curd or the decadent whipped langres cheese with sherry caramel and macadamia nuts.
The staff were wandering around aimlessly and did not check in on us at all unless we asked them to. This is unusual for a restaurant of this calibre. It took about 30 mins for our first drinks to arrive.
Food was exceptional as was the service.
Felt slightly rushed as at an early sitting
Exceptional food.unbeleivable expierence to taste what great flavour and food insights can be delivered on a plate.
The service was at the standard expected of a top 2 hat restsurant. The wait staff were knowledgable and helpful in describing the 8 course degustation.
Sensational night of wining and dining, celebrating my daughter's 21st birthday. From entry to bar and selecting table, the service was exceptional and wine recommendation was spot on. Vegetarian and omnivore choices could not be faulted. A definite revisit for next special occasion
Wonderful degustation including separate vegetarian selection. Great wine list
Beautiful interiors, good service and delicious meals. Fresh, warm bread with sesame butter was a lovely way to start a flavorsome lunch.
This is a do yourself a favour place to visit. Such interesting dishes that are beautifully flavour packed. The quality and finess will not disappoint.
Fabulous restaurant, my favourite when entertaining clients in Sydney. Service and food both top notch, always a very special experience
Far to much noise interference from the bar, too casual,& too dark to be considered fine dining.
Complicated & unusual sauces spoilt what was otherwise good food.
Amazing food paired with an equally great service. I’ve heard so much about Bentley and had high expectations which was met when I had dinner last night with my family!
Everyone enjoyed every bite and loved the place
Food fantastic ,only 1 criticism for a top dining establishment was sadly no one to greet when we entered walked around lost for 3:4 min finally greeted by some one .cocktails also fanatic service good .
Overrated! Ambience a tad too industrial and much too dark to appreciate what's on the plate.
The bread roll at $4 with insipid house butter was a total disappointment, one could enjoy a roll from a Vietnamese bakery much more. Better to take it out of the menu.
Service was excellent though. Wine selection was also excellent.
Service is as wonderful as the food, hard to find better in Sydney
Enjoyed the 5 course tasting menu on a Sat night with matching wines. Didn't order the 8 course as it looked like you had to choose food options which we didn't feel like doing, but later realised (after seeing a nearby table) that you get everything on the menu! Will be doing that next time.
Knowledgeable sommelier, got to try to old world wines I wouldn't have normally chosen, attentive wait staff. Good cocktails to start. Small range of nice boutique beers. Enjoyed the night :-)
Chef has an awesome approach
Great service and wonderful food combinations I would highly recommend this restaurant, one minor annoyance was the bench seat in the window we were sitting in, was too low and rather uncomfortable.
Also a little annoying to pay a credit card surcharge when you have just paid a bill of $500 and given a $70 tip! For two people!!
5 year anniversary
The waitstaff where extremely professional and knowledgable. The food was an absolute experience and I feel lucky to have experienced such exquisite fine dining once again. We left with memories we will share with our family and friends.
Amazing food and attentive service and a incredibly extensive wine list
While I advised the waitress I was Gluten Free, I believe that something I ate had gluten in it - when I see the results today. Also, the waitress had strong breath.
we tried the 5 course tasting menu with matching wines.
the staff were extremely formative with the wines and food as each course was served.
we advised that we had 1 Gluten free guest and the dishes were adjusted as required without any fuss not change.
we advised we had a concert at 8pm and they kept that in mind and had us out of the restaurant by 7.50 which gave us just the right amount of time without rushing.
Delightful dinner and amazing restaurant. Thank you to all the Bentley staff.
Absolutely amazing setting, food and service. One of the best restaurant I have ever been too. While some item on the menu are expensive (caviar is $240 for 30g), the rest is well priced for a special occasion dinner.
The food was great. I loved my quail. However the young waitress who served us was going through the motions and in a hurry for us to finish. She gave us the menus and came back to take the order incredibly quickly. We asked for bread twice. On two occasions she took drinks away that had not been finished. Res ipsa loquitur.
Without a doubt the best meal I have ever eaten. Outstanding. Just go.
* weekend 5 course degustation
My partner and I went across to make up for a belated Valentines Day dinner. The wait staff were so great. The welcome was warm and friendly, the waiter expertly noted our allergies and food preferences (something that we had forgotten to notify them of in advance).
The waiter took our late notification in his stride. He pointed out that we could easily be catered for. It gave us great comfort. The food was excellent and vegan-friendly.
The tasting menu and wine list were as ever, completely outstanding.
A wonderful place to dine we had the five course tasting menu with matching wines and each course was superb with excellent service to match we will be going back .
Excellent food but the service is very uneven and staff got a bit mixed up with each other. For the price, I would expect much more attentive service and no long wait between courses.
The waiter was excellent, selected some great wines for the table and the food was excellent.
Great location for a long business lunch.
Great food and attentive service.
Hi I am not ususally inclined to review however due to the extremely poor service I feel obliged to share.
To start it was a 15-20min wait to be asked for water.
Service throughout the course was sub par and difficult to order drinks.
Wait staff were not receptive nor explained the dishes.
Definitely the worst degustation service I have ever had.
Clearly not worthy of the $500+
No exaggeration at all ... this was a perfect dining experience. I come to Sydney once a year and my daughter chooses a top restaurant for me and this is certainly now in my top ten World class list!!
We had the five course menu ... each course was a masterpiece of taste combinations. The staff were a delight and we felt thoroughly spoilt.
I had an amazing meal at Bentley. It's one of the few restaurants in Australia that manages to deliver a complete dining experience: innovative food, a library of wines, playful libations from the bar, all delivered by informed and spirited staff.
The Bentley was amazing! Beautifully designed restaurant, the food was seriously some of the best food I've eve had! The staff were incredibly lovely! I will definitely be returning to the Bentley next time I'm in Sydney.
Bentley Restaurant is a beautiful space and a place where one can enjoy a wonderful meal served by a professional waitstaff. The menu is small, but the dishes are creative and beautifully presented. This is an excellent place to enjoy a special occasion meal.
Beautiful food both taste-wise and visually, and coming off an imaginative menu. The staff are very pleasant and attentive. The venue is striking, with a great combination of old stately grandeur, complete with a modern twist. Given the number of diners there, the restaurant was still pleasantly quiet. The additional 'starters' - which came as a surprise - were lovely.
Menu was varied and staff were very knowledgeable about details of the menu selection. Meals need side dishes as I would describe the accompaniments as decorative or designed to add to taste as opposed to adding to the meal.
We had a good experience and the staff were excellent .
The Bentley is AMAZING!!! Everything about it exceeds all expectations. Thank you to everyone there!
